    Default Hello from London England !

    Hello everyone. My name is Amy. This is the first time myself and my husband Mike have ever owned a dog. Boo was born on the 2nd May 2013 and is getting big by the day.
    When we first got Boo he was 8 weeks old. He appeared well when we bought him and came with all his pedigree papers, kennel club registered, jabs up to date etc, however after the first day he appeared very unwell, he spent the first 3 days in the Vets, dehydrated and unwell. On the second day he was sick and vomited up a 10inch worm!!!
    We reported the breeder to the Kennel Club as the vet said the worm was very mature and he doubted that Boo had been wormed properly. Poor little fella could of died. We reported the breeder to the kennel club as this was a registered kennel club breeder, but nothing was done.

    All in all we believe if we did not buy Boo he may not be here now, my husband and the children love Boo to bits, I admittedly love him to bits but I have found the dog smell hard to deal with. I have not owned a dog before and am pretty house proud so I have found it difficult to get used to the smell of dog, at first i was bathing him loads, changing his bedding every two days, frebrezing the house, plug ins, hoovering everyday etc but he still stinks I find now though I am accepting the smell, accepting that he is a dog and dogs smell of dog. I am trying to embrace him now and have started taking him out with me. He is a lovely boy though and to be fair has always slept through the night. My love for him is growing although he is naughty for me quite alot, always up to mischief but when Mike is home he behaves really well.

    I look forward to getting to know everyone

    Amy, how exciting you have joined EBN...so much experience & knowledge
    among these members, they really love bullies and willingly share all these
    things and more with any that need help & advice.

    Bullies can be stinky, have you ruled out yeast problems? If so, many have
    found after bathing & rinsing soap out well, a final rinse w/white vinegar,
    left in, can remove doggy odor & lasts awhile. After dog dries the vinegar
    smell will go away. Use a plastic gallon pitcher, put 2 cups vinegar, fill with
    warm water and pour over dog from neck down. You may lightly blot dry.

    Again, welcome to EBN, please post pics of Boo when you can, GOD bless!




    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Your baby is gorgeous and huge !!!!

    Ahh thank you, I will try that the next time I bath him, it's funny because at first I was finding it hard to adapt to having a dog, I did not realise how much care they need and to be honest I was at work most the time and my husband had him, so I did not bond so much with him. But now I have resigned from my job to be home more with my three children and Boo and I are spending a lot of time together bonding I suppose, I do love him to bits and hope he becomes my little friend. Does your bully poo lots, because Boo does, the consistency of his stools are fine, but oh my gosh he goes about four times a day sometimes up to six. He is around 5 months old now and I feed him 3 times a day on a mix of kibble and tinned puppy food. I will upload some pictures, I'm trying to figure out how though, there are some on my profile but not showing up on posts......I'm rubbish with computers :-)
    how is the weather there is Texas. Thanks for welcoming me , Amy

    Hi Amy.....nice to see a fellow Brit here xx I'm up near Manchester.
    My boy Billy also came from a KC accredited breeder, but has been so poorly during his first year that I too dread to think what would have happened with him had we not brought him home with us. I too lodged concerns with the KC but nothing so far as I know was done. I love him to bits, probably more so because my poor baby boy always seems to be fighting one battle or another...some minor, some more serious.
    The right food can be the solution to many Bulldog problems from smelling to ear infections. Get it right and you've cracked it. Finding that right food is another matter lol. Especially now while he's still on puppy food as their isnt that great a choice puppy food wise in the UK. When you swap food..look for a gluten/grain free choice. Most of the good brands have that choice...in general supermarket brands are expensive rubbish....go take a look in the pet store like Pets at home ect xx

    Welcome to the site! I had similar problems with the "dog" smell and when I got dozer on some good quality grain free food it helped a great deal. If it is yeast that you are dealing with, Malaseb shampoo has worked well for me but the right food is the most important thing .
